Exude Lip Creme in Red No. 1 - pics, swatches, review

Hello, Beautiful!

Not long ago I reviewed the Exude Lip Gloss, which I absolutely loved and have been keeping in my purse; the color is perfection when it comes to a nude and the formula is really wonderful. In this post I'll share with you the Exude Lip Creme, which I didn't like as much - I still liked it, but I loved the lip gloss version and I only kind of liked the lip creme version. The shade I have, Red No. 1, isn't a color for me - I just don't like red lipstick on me, but if you like red shades then you would love this one!

Exude Lip Creme Review:
I want to start off by saying that I do like the formula of this Lip Creme, but hated the applicator for it. It's the same applicator/packaging as the Exude Lip Gloss, but for some reason I find it much messier/more annoying to apply the Lip Creme. I'm not sure why, but that's just what I thought. I find it's easier to apply a little bit in the center of your lip, then use your pinky finger to apply it or even a lip brush.

The shade I have, Red No. 1, isn't a shade for me only because I'm not a fan of red shades on me. However, if I put aside how it looks on me, I can say this is a really pretty red. It's a nice vibrant, true red. There is a lot of shine to it too, which is why I liked this formula, and it does feel comfortable on your lips.

Overall, I think this is a really nice formula, but I didn't like the application method of this when I compare it to the Exude Lip Gloss. I'd still recommend trying it out, and I think some people were lucky enough to get one in their Birchbox shipments!
